We were pretty intrigued by “the most ambitious plans Savage team has ever embarked upon,” mentioned by James Cuda in his interview. And today we finally have news about the Procreate 5 update which is to be released later this year.
Whilst some features remain confidential, we are already aware of the mind-blowing Valkyrie, a new graphics engine which will empower artists to import Adobe Photoshop brushes. Obviously, since brushes are the crucial part of Procreate users’ workflow, this innovation will give them extra creative freedom and significantly extend the brush library.
Alongside Valkyrie, the developers introduce Brush Studio. It’s a built-in tool that will let artists combine two brushes to create custom Dual Brushes, and features over 150 different brush settings. This way, users will be able to make up their own brushes by experimenting with the Apple Pencil’s pressure and tilt, as well as the texture generator tool.
Basically, pressure and tilt are in the spotlight of Procreate 5 update as another feature is Color Dynamics. With its help artists can change or create new colors in a single stroke of the Apple Pencil. It also enables users to switch easily between print and web projects by importing CMYK and RGB ICC profiles.
Procreate 5 is still in development and will include more features that Savage Interactive haven’t announced yet (as well animation feature they presented in April). So I recommend you not to forget to update your app to try new Procreate first and stay tuned. We will share the news as soon as there is some.
